I received the following information as a blogger via Experience Kissimmee. All opinions and thoughts expressed are 100% my own.As you can probably tell from our Recipes section here on the blog… we love food! This is why we are super to excited to learn that the World Food Championships officials have announced an early bird opportunity for a limited time to purchase discounted tickets! The early bid ticket holders will get to experience the incredible sights, sounds and tastes of the world-class culinary event when it comes to Kissimmee, FL, November 3-10. The early bird offer is valid now through May 15.
If you are not familiar with the event, the World Food Championships is pretty much the ultimate champion-of-champions food event! There are hundreds of cooking competition winners and hopeful chefs facing off to claim their culinary skills as the cream of the crop. Thousands of foodies and fans will come to Kissimmee to watch it all in this week-long showdown. In time, one competitor will earn the title of World Food Champion. Oh and they also get a check for $100,000! How awesome is that?
“We are delighted to open the registration process early and to extend the events at reduced prices, enabling travelers to make plans now to attend in the fall,” said World Food Championships CEO and President Mike McCloud.
